Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

The stout pours a pitch black with a mocha colored head that is full and creamy. Good lacing too.

The scent is fulling complex with dark fruit, coffee, bakers chocolate and cocoa. The taste is similarly complex with the roasted barley complimenting the sweeter chocolate notes. The coffee plays a good supporting role and puts the beer first. Finishes with some alcohol warmth and semi dry. Fairly well balanced flavor given the complex profile. Mouthfeel is full and rich with a moderate level of carbonation.

All around top notch imperial stout where the coffee adds a pleasant touch.
